Book cover for The Woman Warrior
The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts
Maxine Hong Kingston

For our first LEP Global Book Club read in Fall 2018, we selected Maxine Hong Kingston’s debut novel. Kingston illustrates her struggle of existing between worlds as the American-born daughter of Chinese immigrants. She expertly weaves together scenes from her own life growing up in America with her mother’s stories from China, providing insight into how culture, language, and family bonds shape our own identities.
